August 2023: 6% ROI

    Despite some interesting results from Snake’s Fancied Favourites, we returned to the winner’s stall this month.

    Throughout August, Snake’s Eye identified a total of 105 tips. Surprisingly, 29 of those were Fancied Favourites. Considering we average 13 a month, this was a huge surge, that unfortunately didn’t pay off. Regardless, the monthly returns produced a return of $110.80 (based on a $1 bet per tip). Overall, that’s a 5.5% return on investment.

    The unlucky stat this month was the Top Tote payout. Historically, Top Tote would outpay Fixed Odds on average by 14%. But this month, it paid less than fixed odds, making a decent dent in our winnings. The Snake’s Profitable Ponies was the standout this month, producing a 14.5% ROI from 76 bets. Snake’s Fancied Favourites, however, cost us with a -17.9% ROI from 29 bets.

    Using Snake’s Eye’s Safety Betting Strategy, if you had invested $100 at the start of the month, you’d be feeling pretty unlucky. Despite a winning month, the spaced-out wins hurt our balance. Our starting balance never grew and despite finding enough winners throughout the month we weren’t able to turn that into a return. By the end of the month, you would have finished with $23.47. That’s an ROI of -76.53%.

    Tip of the Month

    This month’s tip of the month went to one of Tuesday’s Roughies when Manor Road produced the goods at $14.40. This tip easily accounted for Counter Command and Jen’s Reward who won at $8.20 and 7.10 respectively.

    Monthly Streak

    Although we had a winning month, it wasn’t due to any streaks. In fact, the winning and losing streaks were quite modest this month. The largest losing streak was only 9 tips, which was favourable. However, the best winning streak we could muster was 3 winners in a row. One of these came in the middle of an 8-tip run that produced 5 winners. Besides that, our best hot streak came in the middle of the month when we found 9 winners from 20 tips. Nothing to really write home about, which is good on one front, but not so great on the other.

    The lack of streaks also hurt our multibets with mostly only doubles found throughout the month. But we were able to find a very nice 4-fold that brought home a $354 return.
